Top customer reviews
It has couple good references to some sources of information.
But overall it doesn't have any insights or something else that might create a profound impression on your Soul!
San Pedro has the ability (when approached respectfully and with clear intent) to change lives and health states profoundly and very much for the better. This book conveys much of the amazing San Pedro without overwhelming the reader in pseudo-spiritual hyperbole [very 'well done' to the author for this!]
The good - Well organised and readable! In many cases, the author has a clear point to make and sets about leading the reader there in a clever narrative. Ross Heaven also avoids the whole 'Noble Savage' concept, which is also a welcome relief from some of the other texts on these types of subjects. His descriptions and interviews are clear, well articulated and nicely framed within the context of the book's flow.
The bad - There are a few spots where it truly feels like the publisher wanted some more pages after the fact and the resulting text is, unfortunately, quite aimless and poorly integrated (the circumstances of writing are unknown to me - I am using this as an illustration, not portraying events unknown to me).
The last word - For anyone intending to use San Pedro or partake in shamanic work, this book is a valuable and worthy library addition. Especially where the eitiology of some shamanic practices are questionable, the author shares some pertinent points and the opinions of others highly qualified to comment. This book will stay on my bookcase and will probably be read again a few more times.
P.S. - The interview with La Gringa is a gem and shares much of the nature of San Pedro shamanism in a very approachable way - well done!
